Say what you want about Tom Cruise, but that man is determined to die on film for our entertainment. With each Mission: Impossible movie, the insanity of the stunts Tom Cruise performs only increases. Of course, a stunt crew is present, but that’s still really Tom Cruise hanging off the side of huge plane during takeoff. Or scaling the world’s tallest building. Or HALO jumping. Let’s put it this way, the guy who wrote Cruise’s life insurance policy was fired a long time ago. Regardless, as the videos below show, the man knows how to promote a movie. Take a look…
When it comes to pulling off insane stunts and action sequences, it certainly doesn’t hurt that Tom Cruise is batshit crazy. Not to mention the immortality and other abilities granted to him through Scientology. Mission: Impossible is one of the best action franchises of the 21st century, so needless to say Dead Reckoning is high on my list of most anticipated movies of 2023. Check out the trailer below.
A look back at some of the coolest stunts in the series…

On this episode of The World’s Best Podcast, I sat down for an interview with Film Location Manager, Mark Fitzgerald. Mark has become synonymous with Boston filmmaking. You may not immediately recognize his name, but he’s left his mark on The City of Boston’s portrayal in movies like few people have. As Location Manager for dozens of films over the last two decades and beyond, he’s worked on movies all over the country, as well as some of Boston’s most iconic films. In our far reaching interview, we discuss how through his work with legendary filmmakers like Martin Scorsese, Clint Eastwood, David Mamet, and Ben Affleck, Mark has reshaped how this unique city has been brought to life on film. All this and much more, in this incredibly fascinating interview covering Mark’s prolific career in the movie business. This discussion was an absolute delight and I hope you enjoy listening to it, as much as I did recording it! Enjoy!
Mark was kind enough to send me the photos below, which he really liked because of the circumstances behind them. While working on the film “21”, Mark and the rest of the production team where able to close off Massachusetts Ave. in Boston and land their camera mounted helicopter, which is no east feet! It had to be cleared with multiple government agencies, as well as the BPD. As he explained it to me, the director even wanted the 22 polls removed from each side the bridge. All of this to get a sweeping a shot of one of the actors on a motorcycle driving across the bridge. Despite all the difficulties and hard work they managed to get it all done! Unfortunately, as it sometimes happens, the shot ended up on the cutting room floor! (Mark is on the far right of the photos, wearing a long sleeve white shirt, jeans, and work boots)
Mark’s next film hitting theaters is Free Guy starring Ryan Reynolds, premiering later this year. When the pandemic allows for filming to begin, Mark’s next project will be working on the next movie from Academy Award winning director Adam McKay (Anchorman, The Big Short, Step Brother, Vice)!
